Gloves Control Smartphone

Gloves Control Smartphone

BEARTek gloves let you answer calls, change the song you’re listening to or lower the volume by touching your fingers together.

BEARTek goes beyond making it easier to text in the winter, with these gloves you can answer calls, change the song you’re listening to, or lower the volume on your smartphone. Mashable reports that they are the world’s first gloves that offer built-in Bluetooth controls for your phone, with six pads on three of the fingers for controlling basic functions.

To control your music or calls, you simply touch the thumb to the appropriate touchpoint, while your hands remain protected inside the gloves and your phone is stored in your pocket. They pair with most iOS and Android devices and include high-end features such as high tensile strenth nylon thread stitching and a soft brushed fleece interior lining.

Bluetooth-Connected Gloves Can Control Your Smartphone

The BEARTek gloves have been developed by Blue Infusion Technologies, which was founded in 2010 by Willie Blount, who wanted a solution for controlling his music while riding his motorcycle. They are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, and early birds can get their hands on the first gloves for $250. Check out the campaign video below for more information:
